The beach has 2 breaks, One on each side of the jetty. The bottom changes often and depending on the swell, it's better on one or the other, so get there and see wich side you want to surf that day.
Sometimes it can break magical, but normally is a very sloppy wave.
As many beaches around Puerto Cabello (El Palito) it is very dirty, and contaminated, including human waste.
